A Winter's Day.......

Afternoon everybody

Hope you have all had a good Christmas and are ready for the New Year to arrive. New beginnings for us all.....

I have enjoyed my break eventually, after making all my Christmas cards etc. I like the fact that you clear all the Christmas crafting stuff away, and bring out the new, if not different, elements out.

My theme this January is:- A Winter's Day.  I wanted not to forget winter, as I like the cold frosty mornings, warm woollies and hot drinks!!!! Just to add though, I am not keen on all this rain that seems to come along with winter too!!!!!

Green, turquoise and clean white are the colours on this class.
I am using a stamp from Woodware that I had in the past, but is very appropriate for winter. A new stamp from Creative Expressions which has some nice text on it too. Papers from Craft Creations and Simple Stories. Promarkers in shades of green, brown and turquoise, (new) of which I have for sale.


Ribbon, netting, buttons and twine.


Close-up on the clear stamp from Creative Expressions.



First sample using the Snowdrop stamp.


Second sample is the Winter's Day card.


I have left this card without a greeting on it, so you can send it for whatever the occasion.

I hope you like the two samples, I will be back with a third very soon, just wanted to get the blog up and running again.
The classes will be on:-

Sat. 13th Jan  2018  FULL/CANCELLED

Sat. 20th Jan  2018 FULL
Sat. 27th Jan  2018


Same time, 1.30pm, same place, and same price £18.00  The price of the packs will be £10.00 for those not attending a class.

Thank you for popping by and I hope you all have a very Happy New Year and look forward to seeing you in 2018.
Take care

Christmas Wreath.........

Afternoon ladies

I thought I would keep in touch with you all, by sending a Christmas wreath card that I have made.
Busy at the moment making all my Christmas cards for my friends and family, as I would imagine are most of you.
December is usually a busy time for all, that's why it is a good opportunity for a break from doing classes.
It gives me a chance to catch up, enjoy the Christmas festivities and recharge my batteries for the coming year.

I have made this card using stamps from Cardio, Branchng Out, for the wreath and for the background, and Christmas Hang-ups for the hanging ornaments.



I used Memento inkpads, Bamboo Leaves and Rhubarb Stalk.
Two of my favourite colours.
Finished off with liquid pearls.

I love the little pegs that are on the stamps too.
Hope you like the card and it gives you a little inspiration.

Take care all, and see you soon.

Christmas... Black and White.

Good morning ladies

I am back with the second of my Christmas card samples for November..... Christmas black and white, and a little bit of red and a little bit of silver.....

I seem to have made a lot of Christmas cards of late, even though it is only October, but I haven't started on my own cards yet! By the time I get to making my cards for Christmas, the mind will have gone blank!!! I so enjoy the making of Christmas items, be it cards or sewing, especially when the weather is awful. Where have all the nice Autumn days gone to..... luckily we can see the changing of the colours, if not the sun!!

My theme this time is black and white with added sparkle.

New papers, new stamps, what more could you want....




First sample:-
Using the penguin stamp from LOTV. Cute picture to colour in.


Second sample:-
Christmas bauble stamp used on the inside of this card. A little sparkle added.


Third sample:-


Simple with a touch of sparkle.
Papers from Craft Creations.

Dates:-
Sat. 11th Nov. FULL
Sat. 25th Nov.
£18.00 for each class

Let me know if you would like to come along.
Also let me know if you are interested in another small Christmas card class on a Wed.
Thank you for popping by.
Back soon.
